O ladybird
I crave your pardon if I woke you with my thinking

I have heard you wish to walk me through your meadow
All through the winter time
Time seemed longer than a goods train
Your name
O ladybird
No weeping willow was ever as beautiful, sad as you are

I'm laying on the grass and making chains of thought
But bit by bit you fade to gone

Love was hanged and treason became
Now sun is back in power I'll ask your name

I have heard you have to run to tend your children
For ladybird
